I'm a young engineer at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. My work involves planning resources for a 100% clean energy city. I develop projects such as utility scale wind, solar, geothermal, biomass resources as well as energy storage such as batteries, pumped hydro, and other emerging technologies.
The energy industry is evolving as it is reacting to the impacts of climate change. Society as a whole must plan for adaptation and mitigation as impacts are becoming more severe. Intensifying wildfires and droughts are emerging issues for places like California.
I'm an ASCE New Face of Civil Engineering and a sustainable infrastructure advocate.
